Football: The Reaction .GIF Edition

Honesty time: I actually had this one put together before I did my World Cup .gif post, but figured I’d wait until the football season started up again to post.  (That feeling of having a post waiting in queue for months at a time is weird you guys.) But! Since the season has started up again, here we are!

Whenever someone starts talking about how their club is, ‘the people’s club':

Favourite Photogs: Zack Seckler

ZackSeckler_9

I don’t know if photography can be labeled as ‘smart’ but that’s what I’d call Zack Seckler’s work.  Smart as in,”Wait is that….is that on purpose?” and ‘I see what you did there.” Where, at first glance, you’re not really sure you’re seeing what you’re seeing and so you look closer and yes, that is what you’re seeing and oh yes, it’s intentional. It’s funny and makes you stop for a second and makes me think of ‘child like’, like a kid playing around with photography.

Announcing: A Blog Break

IMG_1681

After some thought and looking at what the next few weeks are going to look like, I’ve decided I’m going to have a bit of a blog break. I fly home on Saturday and, as I mentioned in my Good Things last week, I have some good news: starting the second week of September, I’ll be working at a weekly newspaper. Which is great news and means I don’t need to job hunt when I get home, but also means it’s going to be a busy week.

So, I’ll be taking a two to three week break. I’ll be back before the end of September and I do have some posts already sketched out, including my trip to Sevilla, my last few days in Madrid, my trip home and I’ve even got a couple of guides in the works, which I’m really excited about. Please stick around for when I come back and, while I’m away, here are some older posts you might find interesting:

La Boqueria in Barcelona
A trip to Valencia
A love letter to Swedish food
Visiting San Sebastian
Food by the ocean
Prague in wintertime
A scrapbook of adventures in France
One of many football matches
Nice was nice
Fresh food and art in London 

I’ll have my Good Things post up tomorrow and my Things I’ve Been Reading post up on Sunday, so keep an eye out for those and I’ll see you all in a few weeks!
